  • [01] Latest poll shows continued ND lead over PASOK

    Ruling New Democracy (ND) fielded a 2.5-point lead over main opposition PASOK, 42 percent to 39.5 percent, in the latest opinion poll unveiled on Thursday.

    In terms of smaller parties, 8 percent of respondents in the poll picked the Communist Party of Greece (KKE); 3.5 percent opted for the Coalition of the Left (Synaspismos) and 4.5 percent for the out-of-Parliament LA.OS party.

    Regarding the question of who is more capable to govern, 49 percent of respondents chose Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis; 24 percent picked PASOK leader and former foreign minister George Papandreou, whereas 19 percent said neither.

    On the question of which of the two major parties can best deal with the country's problems, ND was chosen by 33 percent of respondents to 15 percent for PASOK. A majority, 38 percent, said neither.

    Two other questions queried respondents on whether the ND government is keeping its pre-election promises and on whether the main opposition party is undergoing renewal.

    Regarding the first, 51 percent of respondents said the government is "probably not" meeting its pre-election pledges; 26 percent it "probably is"; 17 percent gave a mixed answer.

    Finally, 53 percent of respondents said they did not believe PASOK was undergoing a renewal; 27 percent said it was, and 6 percent gave a mixed answer.

    The opinion poll, conducted by the VPRC firm, was commissioned and unveiled by the Athens-based radio network Skai. A total of 949 respondents were interviewed by telephone throughout the country on Jan. 9 and Jan. 10.
